Silber Sounds of Christmas
Merry Christmas from Silber Records. Silber Sounds of Christmas is our third Christmas compilation & once again offered as a free download to the internet savvy. This time we’re joined by old friends (Electric Bird Noise, Blessed Child Opera, Immune) as well as new friends (Siberia, The Wades, Rachel Goldstar) along with some of the Silber roster themselves (Remora, Small Life Form, Plumerai, Goddakk).
Twenty-three artists appear generally bringing us brand new material. The more straightforward covers are Shiny Around the Edges doing “The Christmas Song,” Mars Field doing “Jesus Christ” (by Big Star), & My Ambient Nature Girl doing a portion of Handel’s Messiah. In the drastic re-interpretation category we have The Upsidedown Stars with “Hark, the Herald Angels Sing,” Sailor Winters with “What Child Is This?” & Remora with “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel” & “What Can I Give Him?” The musical styles vary greatly from guitarscapes (Siberia) to ambient noise (Small Life Form) to post-punk (South West Airline) to dream-pop (Rachel Goldstar) to minimalist classical (Duane Pitre/Pilotram). So there’s something for almost everyone. We hope you enjoy the music & can play it throughout the season & on through the soundtrack of your life.
